Our Mission

‘EYLE’s adult literacy, numeracy and computer skills program transforms lives and enhances self-worth by empowering individuals to reach their full potential.’

We help adults improve their reading, writing and basic math.  We also offer computer-based training to our literacy students.  Operating as a charity in East Toronto since 1987, we have helped over a thousand adults build better lives.

Our clients meet weekly in one-to-one sessions with trained, volunteer tutors.  They follow an individualized training plan to meet their literacy goals.

Did you know?

42% of Canadian adults between 16-65 years have low literacy skills.  They can not read or write well enough to:

  • apply for jobs
  • read a newspaper
  • write a letter
  • fill out forms
  • do banking

Our services are free to clients because of the generous support of our funders and private donors.
